Clips I'd Like to See
The second was about The Matrix Reloaded. The famous fight scene between Neo and an increasing number of Agent Smiths was really fun to watch, but I started wondering if I could fend off a whole group of little kids. This made me chuckle, reimagining the entire scene with little kids instead of grown men. It's akin to the humor in Billy Madison in which Adam Sandler plays dodgeball with a whole bunch of little kids. Anyway, if you want to make an internet meme, make this clip!
Aerosmith's Crazy video that came out while I was in high school. For those not in the know, that's a younger Alicia Silverstone slipping out one of the windows of her prep school. It's memorable for just about every dude my age because, at least in those years, she was the epitome of hot.
So, oddly, I found recreating this fun, sexy video into a hilarious one featuring a couple of nerds. Imagine instead of Silverstone a guy slipping out the window and getting his shirt or underwear caught on the latch as a fun beginning. It only gets better when he meets up with his other dorky friend, and they take off for a day in the town. If you're a RTF major, this would make an awesome final project.
So that's it. No ideas today about solving world hunger or the energy crisis. I'm just excited to see a couple of potential memes that have floated around in my mind and made me laugh.
